Exception in post_process_request on permission error

Reported by: Remy Blank Owned by: Noah Kantrowitz
Priority: low Component: WikiRenamePlugin

Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


When trying to view a wiki page while not having the permissions to do so, the plugin throws in post_process_request():

2008-08-02 22:53:05,837 Trac[main] WARNING: 403 Forbidden (WIKI_VIEW privileges are required to perform this operation on WikiStart)
2008-08-02 22:53:29,882 Trac[main] ERROR: 'NoneType' object is unsubscriptable

  File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/wikirename/", line 64, in post_process_request
    page = data['page']
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is unsubscriptable

This is due to the fact that data is None when an exception is raised in process_request(). The following patch fixes the problem:
